I really need some help here.  Keeley has crossed the " Rainbow Bridge"  At first Bonnie seemed okay but now she has totally changed.  I think she really misses Keeley.  She doesn't seem interested in anything.  We are at the beach house and she usually likes to play with the neighbors dog but she now just lays down and shows no interest.  She has also lost all interest in food.

If anyone has had this experience and was able to resolve it please give me your advice

I have heard that dogs grieve the same as humans but differently.
I think Saint Hubert's in Morristown NJ web site may have something about this.

For now some extra love and compassionate talk might help.

Good Luck Love Riley and Allen

When we lost Little Gremmie,we buried her in the garden and Eric was there ,we showed him her to let him know she had left for the Bridge...they used to kiss each morning and loved each other,Eric would not walk over her grave but a few weeks after he went down and did a poop right on her grave and had a seizure by the fence....it was strange the way that happened.he was diagnosed with a brain tumour and sure he would have had a seizure at some point anyway but he missed Gremmie lots I do know...they know and feel more than we often give them credit for....I have to say Eric carried on for another  2 years till he was 17,Nimby never showed any signs when we lost Ellie or Emma but I am sure she missed Dear Ellie though for a while....Like us I think it varies as to how long the sadness will go on and Hope  soon that Bonnie will start to eat more and feel better,Please give her a kiss from us  here....and let us know when you can how she is doing and know you are in our hearts....Hugs Annie and Gang xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I went through this with Phoenix when Faith passed over, it took over two weeks before she would come out of the closet on her own. we took her to the vet and he put her on a strong vitamin, then we would take her for walks, talk to her, yes even about Faith. She was never her old self but she did start to play with Tillie after awhile.   

You don't have a Tillie so you must become her best friend.
Furkids grieve just as we do, only they can't talk about their feelings, but then need a lot of love at this time in life.

Robin did the same ting when Buster died, she wouldn't walk or eat much, now matter how hard I tried.  it was suggested to me that I find her another friend, that is when I got Presley.  He really helped her get over her missing buster, but I know that sometimes and some suggestions getting another dog is not possible. Just be patient with her and I am sure she will come around.


god bless her.

Everyone grieves in their own way whether they're human or four footed it seems. When Kelsie passed, our old Mama Kitty looked everywhere for her, making the most pitiful meow you ever heard! During the last months, Kelsie was blind and Mama Kitty would lead her around the backyard and they "talked" to each other. It was weeks before the cat realized that Kelsie wasn't coming back. We just gave her extra love and hoped for the best. The strange part was that before she went blind, Kelsie didn't care for cats at all! Life is funny that way. Hopefully, Bonnie will adjust and we'll keep all of you in our prayers and look for an update later on how she's doing.
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

When Kelsi passed late September 2015 I thought at least I still have Hannah to keep Matilda (who was then 14 months) company while I am at work and while they did miss Kelsi they did have each other. But then 7 1/2 weeks later Hannah passed away and I was left with one confused clingy little Matilda. I'd come home from work and she would cling to my side, sit on my feet when I sat down, follow me around the house, she didn't play with her toys. Fortunately a few weeks later I had 3 weeks holidays so I could stay home with her. Then when I went back to work she only had 5 days on her own at home as we got Izabella 8 weeks on the following Saturday. They bonded straight away and are best buddies.

For the time when Matilda was on her own, I turned on the radio if I had to go out, spent a lot of time with her when I was home, did her favourite things like go for a walk, go for a ride in the car. She was miserable on her own. If I didn't work full-time I would have waited a little longer to add another puppy but Matilda needed the company and in our case it was the best thing I ever did. I know she grieved just as much as I did.

Levi was grieving also very much when Moshe passed. He did eat but slept a lot.

 He never played much with toys but loved playing with Moshe through the house zooming.

 He was a very lonesome boy but the minute we came home with Winter he perked up a little. Winter  try's to get him to play and after a few weeks he came out of his shell.

So glad we have Winter Levi is even walking much better now that Winter has the lead.

 I am so sorry for your Loss.
